Wombat's Tales of Tuesday

Gleanings from Wombat-socho's "Live at Five: 01.20.15"

Iran Confirms Israelis Bagged One Of Their Generals In Strike On Hezbollah Five other Iranians along with six Hezbollah members croaked by Israeli helicopter attack in Syria UN observers say it was drones, not helicopters, Israel, Lebanon brace for possible Hezbollah retaliation - The Middle East continues its long running record for the world's most screwed up region.

Fighting Rages In Donetsk, Lugansk Russia admits “volunteers” fighting alongside rebels - "Volunteers" huh? Then they won't mind when they get killed, I guess. Looks like Russia is ready to make the Balkans compete with the Mideast.

Nobody Cares About The State Of The Union Speech David Greenberg: “I think there is a sense of fatigue with the Obama administration.” - I expect to continue my long practiced policy of not watching what politicians say, but rather what they do.

Boehner Mocks Obama’s College Plan With Taylor Swift GIFs - OK, this is classic. The GOP needs to do more of this warfare through the social media. It works well for the dems.

Study Used To Support NY Fracking Ban Developed By Anti-Fracking Activists - The finest science money could buy. Start with the conclusion. It saves time.
One of the three peer-reviewers is Sandra Steingraber, a biologist and environmental advocate who is also co-founder of New Yorkers Against Fracking. Two others, Robert Oswald and Jerome Paulson, are vocal opponents. Several of the study's authors, though not all, are known fracking skeptics and have ties to groups that oppose the practice -- including Denny Larson, study co-author and director of Global Community Monitor, which is sharply critical of fracking.
Jennifer Aniston On Kate Hudson’s “Irresistible Tush”
"Well, my gosh, look at that ass," Aniston, 45, said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Jan. 19, when Ellen DeGeneres showed the photo of the actress grasping her friend's rear. "It's such an irresistible tush."
Talk about a target rich environment. Did she ask permission? Does "Yes means yes" apply to Hollywood? Is Ellen jealous?

Jenny McCarthy ( a while ago)
Bloggy Stuff:

American Power: Britain’s Sun News Drops Page 3 Girls - A win for political correctness, a loss for freedom of boobs expression.

Don Surber: Boris Badenov Finally Wins. EVIL. - Moose under threat from wolves, scientists studying global warming.
Jammie Wearing Fools: Dingy Harry May Retire Rather Than Face Defeat In 2016 - Bueno!
